 Forum: General and Technical Information, Questions, and Responses   Topic: Tips for Safe Driving on Interstates

A few weeks ago There was an article on the website RVTravel.com about how to drive an RV on Interstates. As a former instructor for the AARP Smart Driver course I read a lot of the things I used to teach. It reminded me that we all need a reminder now and then to keep our skills sharp. This article...

If I recall correctly the heated tank option was an electric heating pad that was attached to the bottom of the tanks. So if you look underneath the coach at the bottom of the tanks there should be a pad glued on to the bottom, probably with some wires going to it.

If you are an FMCA member they have a great discount on Michelin Tires. They also have discounts on Hankook and Continental tires. I used the Michelin Discount program and saved a substantial amount of money.

The only caution I have ever read about tire shine products is not to use any that are petroleum based. Evidently that can prematurely age the rubber. I must say that the tire looks great and the shine on your coach is excellent for a 19 year old vehicle.

The Firefly electrical system in the newer coaches includes an Outback inverter/charger. This system is different from the older coaches and perhaps has more capabilities than the old style. I was told at the BF factory not to touch the settings on the control panel and leave it to a technician. If ...

My storage facility does not have any electrical provisions. I have the outback inverter/charger and plug into a 15 amp service at home when getting ready to leave on a trip. The refrigerator on the electricity setting does get cold over a 12 to 24 hour period depending upon the outside temperature....

So in that spirit I want to encourage you to check out the Nature Coast Rally in Homosassa Springs, FL starting on April 1, 2020. It is posted on our website here https://...

Looking for some travel advice for our summer trip. We are leaving the National Rally in Amana this summer and then traveling the section of Historic Rt. 66 from St Louis to Oklahoma City. Our first question is it safe and/or prudent to travel through St Louis with a Coach and toad? Are there any ar...

Your coach probably has the same shades as mine. They are from Auto-Motion Shade Inc http://www.automotionshade.com. Nearest dealer to you according to their website would be Brad and Hall in Elkhart, IN. http://www.braddandhall.com. Good luck. If mine ever go out I think I would do as Montir did an...

My 2015 Splendor (E450 Chassis) has the outback inverter mounted behind the rear axle on the drivers side, as I recall. Haven't seen it since I picked up the coach at the factory. Not sure where it is mounted on the F550 chassis.

Vlamgat has a point about those high speed highways out west. The vehicles whizzing past can be very disturbing but frankly I don't feel very comfortable driving a 27' Born Free at 70 mph let alone 80. 65 is my max and I usually keep it at 60. I really don't think there is any large vehicle that is ...

Not usually necessary to replace the windows. There are companies that repair your existing windows. In Florida there is a company called Suncoast Deigners Inc. in Hudson, FL that specializes in this. There are others but friends of mine have used Suncoast and spoke well of them. Here is the URL for...
